when WW1 had just started many soldiers wore only cloth caps. as the high numbers of head injuries became more apparent, metal helmets quickly replaced the cloth hats. but after the soldiers recieved the metal helmets the number of head injuries rose even higher. since the intensinty of the war stayed constant, how can this strange phenomenon be explained?
answer:With the cloth hats, head injuries more-often-than-not resulted in death. Therefore, on the casualty reports, death was listed instead of a head injury. Once the helmets were introduced, instead of dying from a head wound, more soldiers would survive impacts to the head, thus causing the number of head injuries reported to increase.

if it takes a man 1 hour to dig a hole 2 metre long , 2 metre wide and 2 metres deep. how long would it take the same man to dig a hole four metres long, 4 metres wide and 4 metres deep if he digs at the same speed? explain?
answer:2 m * 2 m * 2m = 8 cubic meters

4 m * 4 m * 4 m = 64 cubic meters

64 / 8 = 8

1 hour * 8 = 8 hours

I think you have to calculate Volume (see above). Since the hole would be 8 times as large, it would take 8 times as long. Therefore, 8 hours.

The broken car is your monopoly piece, the little metal car.

Final Riddles

Riddle 1

There area 3 switches for a globe in room A. there is a small section of the wall in room B that has been hollowed out and it contains a light bulb. U are only allowed to enter room B ONCE. After that one time it is closed and locked. The riddle is to find which light switch turns on the globe in room B. for clarity make the first switch i), the second ii) and the third iii).

Some advice, u cannot look in the room and then come back, this is counted as entering and the room is closed from there on. And also when the room is closed no light escapes the room or enters the room in any way

answer: u turn on switch i then leave it. then turn it off and turn on switch ii. then look. if the globe is hot it is i, if it is on then it is ii, if it is niether then it is iii

Riddle 2

When I was a detective I had heard about a Mr. Bush who was trying to rob a bank with a detailed plan. Bush was brought in for some questioning. Bush denied the plans existence at first but soon confessed and said he would tell the truth. Bush told me that he thought he was being tailed so he went into a local library and hid his plan in a book. bush said he was certain it was between pages 125 and 126 but bush tried so hard to remember those numbers he had forgotten the name of the book. I then said “its obvious ur lying mr. Bush”

Whats wrong with bush’s story?

answer: page 125 and 126 are on the same page so it is impossible to dp this

Riddle 3

Ed, editor of HC weekly, returned to his office to find me waiting for him. I told Ed “ur co-editor, Eve, was found dead in the parking garage strangled to death. Her purse is gone as well as anything of importance.”

“Oh, no!” said Ed “it must have been those hoods I saw around the garage this morning” just then I noticed a message on bill computer. It read ‘Dear Ed, I know we had plans to work on our ‘Turban Tribunal’ bit at 1:00 p.m. and I apologize for any inconveniance my temporary absence will cause. I had to return to the restarant immedietely since I forgot to pay the bill. Signed, Eve’

“This wasn’t a chance mugging, it was pre-meditated murder!” what raised my suspicion?

answer:Eve mispelled 3 words. the co-editor wouldnt have made such mistakes which meant she didnt write the note.

Congrats to T-A aswell as the runner up angelito and all competitors in Riddle Master. hope u guys all had as much fun playing as i had making. See u next time

yes the waiter took the bowl with the fly in it, took it out and returned it to me. how do i know it was the same bowl? (and no i didnt see him do it on my way to the bathroom)

next riddle

i recently was eating a bowl of soup at restuarant and i noticed a fly in it. i called the waiter and said "there is a fly in my soup you...um...use ur imagination here." i demanded a new bowl of soup and told the waiter to not take the fly out and return me the same bowl. the waiter returned with what he told me was a new bowl. a minute later i called the waiter over again and told him that this is the same bowl as before. how did i know?


wow this one isn't easy, i just thought of this not sure if it is correct..

As it mentions the guy was eating the bowl of soup. He may not have liked the taste, so he put in pepper or salt or something to change the flavour, and then when the bowl was returned he knew it was a different taste, therefore proving it was the same bowl?
